It may be used as a highlighter on the excessive factors of the face or blended in with varied base merchandise (moisturizer, basis, and many others.). It worn effectively for 9 hours as a highlighter and didn’t impede the wear and tear of my complexion merchandise when blended in, although it did assist the whole lot apply a little bit nicer.
The protection was versatile; it was extra noticeable and pigmented when patted onto the tops of cheek bones however was readily sheered out for all-over glow if desired. You’ll wish to get nearer to your precise pores and skin tone when you plan to put on it all-over (particularly alone), however I discover that when blended with basis or tinted moisturizer, the shades lose their depth and retain largely their tone.

The formulation is meant to be a “customizable complexion booster” that can be utilized as a primer, highlighter, or blended with base merchandise. The road contains seven shades, like a extra typical basis or concealer vary, however they’ve sheerer protection and fantastic pearl, so there may be some flexibility, although for added luminosity (however not altering shade) all-over, one would wish to select a shade nearer to their precise pores and skin tone.
It has a jumbo-sized, doe-foot applicator, which I most well-liked for spot highlighting and priming however is not as purposeful for mixing in with base merchandise (in comparison with a pump). I discover that the lighter shades look very comparable when blended with basis or layered underneath it, so the shade vary is extra versatile than it might sound (for some pores and skin tones).
The feel was clean and light-weight, like a skinny gel-based primer in really feel, so the product simply unfold throughout my pores and skin for an all-over utility (worn as primer, per the model), and it made my pores and skin look radiant. I can see one particular person discovering that end to look “oily,” and one other particular person to really feel prefer it seems to be superbly glowing–it’s positively very radiant by itself, so I would advocate strategically making use of it over naked pores and skin, like a really subtle highlighter, or mixing it in with moisturizer when you’re somebody who desires glow however not full-on dewiness.
I additionally favored to softly swiped the product on utilizing the included doe-foot applicator on the excessive planes of my face, subtle and blended (over a larger space than I might have if utilizing it particularly to spotlight my cheekbones) and gently dabbed basis over it. I like to recommend utilizing a sheer to medium protection basis over one thing full protection, as a result of full protection will work higher when it is blended in in any other case the protection degree will tamp down the luminosity fairly a bit.
As a standalone highlighter, it gave me a lit-from-within-glow that was luminous however not cheesy or really shiny, simply regarded dewy on my pores and skin. It labored as effectively over naked pores and skin because it did blended on prime of basis for me. By itself, it lasted effectively for 9 hours with minimal fading and no migration as a cheek highlighter. As a primer, it appeared to assist my make-up go on extra easily however I did not discover any extension of damage (however no shortening both); although the model made no declare about it extending longevity, solely that it might enhance the end and provides pores and skin a glow (so I did not charge it down for not extending the wear and tear).
